The Sigma 100-400mm C is the newest super telephoto zoom lens in the Sigma lineup. With a 4X zoom ratio, this lens is designed for full-frame cameras and offers a lot of reach in a very compact and lightweight package thanks to the variable aperture design. In total specs, features, build, and focal range, it is most closely related to the slightly larger 150-600mm Contemporary lens, and it ships at a slightly lower cost. We are going to do a run through of the shared features and points of differentiation between these two great supertelephoto zoom lenses.

What a difference a couple of years makes!
Two years ago, we were gearing up for PhotoPlus, just days after the announcement of the Sigma Global Vision at photokina 2012. We were preparing ourselves for discussions and briefings to explain the philosophy behind the three new lines being offered.
At that time, many photographers and technical editors were confused as to what Art, Sports, and Contemporary was meant to convey in a lens name. We spent a lot of time that fall explaining the way that Sigma is rethinking lenses and how this relates to the three new lens markings.
